I can follow the logic of your thought. However, Israel’s Defense Minister did confirm this latest military action.
There has been no confirmation from the Israeli side that an armoured vehicle was destroyed. Israeli media report that a vehicle was hit by small arms fire and that they (the Israelis) returned pinpoint fire on the site that shot at them. They used a domestically produced missile to silence that Syrian point. Repeat, no sign that Israelis suffered a major hit with loss of life...this is true for the moment.
